Dreamweaver Question

by mozillauk41 9 replies
I created opt in form and dragged a Picture from my desktop to this form
but after I uploaded and inserted it to my blog picture disappeared.
What I should do with this picture to see it on my blog after uploading?

Thanks Lads

    upload it to your site and make sure dreamweaver is pointing to the picture on YOUR site, not your computer.

      Yes, Dreamweaver allows to choose how you want to reference your documents
      as from the root folder or relative to the document you are creating. Most likely
      the HTML is calling for the picture from your desktop instead of from the root
      folder of your HTML file.

      This is the one thing about Dreamweaver that I don't like.

      By default, the photos, links, everything that points to anything not part of
      the actual page itself, shows up as:

      c:\path\file.ext.

      You have to physically change the link to where the actual photo is on
      your server such as:

      www.mydomain.com/photo.jpg

      or whatever.

      This drove me crazy when I first used Dreamweaver and did a page with
      like 50 photos on it. What a nightmare.

        I usually just make a images folder.

        When I insert an image to dreamweaver, it will show : /image.jpg

        Just upload the whole folder and your done.

        It's because you have chosen the path to the image on your computer.

        The new version of Dreamweaver which is in the Adobe Web Design Package has the ability to choose the relevant path to your image. You can also set it up to connect via FTP and upload instantly.

        It's not a dreamweaver issue, it's user error when selecting the path to the image.

        Steve:

        Please don't shoot me, but any web design program will do that if you don't set it up correctly before doing any site design on your computer (that drove me mad with frontpage before I was introduced to DW).

        The first thing I was taught in site desing class to do was 'define' the site itself.

        I don't know what version you're using (I'm using 2004 mx) but there should be a menu option called 'site'. Click on that, then select 'manage sites' from the drop down menu.

        You can select on 'new' in the next dialogue box, and define where the root folder and the images folder is. DW will then work correctly and not reference the location of images as c:/site/images

        Next time you build a site, try doing that first and see what a difference it makes.

        Let me know how it goes with you on that end.

        Steve you should be using the site feature inside dreamweaver to make specific sites and create a folder structure for those sites.

        So if you had a folder for your site at: c:\mysite
        And you used the site function of dreamweaver and pointed it to that folder...it will keepo your paths correct for uploading.

        For instance...c:\mysite\images

        c:\mysite would be the root of your site just like on your webserver
        if you put an image in from the c:\mysite\images folder...it will transfer correctly to your webserver.

        the path will be right too...say you have index.php in your c:\mysite folder...
        When you grab an image from c:\mysite\images
        it will leave the path correct like:
        <img src="images/blah.jpg">

        Use the site function...it is there to stop headaches hehe.
